No, we are not making this up.
"No one has been charged with a crime in the death of Dexter Paul Williams, 24, whose lifeless body was discovered last Monday, but meteorologist Brett Cummins resigned his position at KARK, CNN reported," according to The Huffington Post..
The Huffington Post article adds, "Cummins had stopped appearing on air last week after it was revealed that he awoke on Labor Day in an empty whirlpool next to Williams, who was purple and blue in the face with a dog collar around his neck and nothing else on his body, The Arkansas Democrat & Gazette said."
According to that Arkansas newspaper, a "homeowner, identified as 36-year-old Christopher Barbour, told police Cummins had come over the night before with Williams. He said Cummins and Williams then began drinking and using illegal drugs, the [police] report said.
"Barbour reportedly told investigators all three men went into the hot tub, but that he left around 11 p.m. The next morning, Barbour heard Cummins snoring and then saw both he and Williams were still in the tub, which had no water in it, according to the report."
The Arkansas paper account adds, " ‘After Brett awoke they discovered that Dexter was unconscious and his face was a different color,’ police wrote in the report. ‘He then explained that Brett screamed and became ill and left the bathroom and vomited on the carpet in the living room.’ "
The Arkansas newspaper story notes, "The cause of death has not yet been determined and Maumelle Police Department Lt. Jim Hansard said KARK meteorologist Brett Cummins is not considered a suspect. Hansard said it’s too early to know whether foul play was involved in the death."
KARK is an NBC affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas and is owned by Nexstar Broadcasting.
